Under Contract, Backups Accepted: Granite Hill North, Kalispell MT

Real Estate Broker/Owner with 406-270-3667, kat@thehousekat.com, Broker/REALTOR® RRE-BRO-LIC-75443

More than 31 acres of gorgeous Montana land just went under contract! But if you are interested in privacy, views, road maintenance, multiple choices for building sites, and abutment to Montana State Land, backup offers for this beautiful piece of land are being accepted!

 

This parcel is part of the Granite Hill Estates, which is located in the western part of Kalispell. The covenants and HOA that cover the property are not onerous. They permit a home, guest houses, accessory buildings, garages and more. There are no specific restrictions on the numbers of animals and pets, as long as they meet county requirements. The only animals not allowed are pigs and swine. And the HOA does cover road maintenance, which is a huge advantage over other areas where this is not the case.

The road comes up to the lowest elevation of the property. There are several options for building near the road without going up the hill, but the pièce de résistance in terms of a potential building site is located at the top.

 

To get there, you will see three or four trails that may have been cleared for use as driveways years ago. While they would need work to make them official roads, and while the new owner will probably decide that switchbacks will be required, these paths make walking up to the top relatively easy.

 

There is also a potential option to put in a driveway starting further up the property roadside, on an old logging trail. The incline is less steep. Once at the higher elevation, the driveway would need to be placed on the hillside which would stay relatively level until reaching the plateau where the views are. So there are several driveway options.

 

And the top of the hill provides beautiful views of nearby hills, the Smith Lake valley, and the lake itself. That's just the view in one direction. Looking behind you, you'll also see other forested hills. The views would be beautiful at any time of year! And also at the top is quite a bit of flat land, which could be perfect for that new home and accessory buildings.

 

The property does not end at the top however. If you continued on, you'd go down the hill and eventually reach Montana state lands. Talk about private! There are no homes visible from the property during the summer and just a few distant homes in the winter. If you like to hike, hunt, bird watch, chop wood, sunbathe in the summer, ride an ATV or enjoy any other outdoor activities, you can do them in total seclusion.

 

So give me a call if you'd like more information, or would like to set up a showing to see this gorgeous piece of land, listed at $400,000. I'm Kat Palmiotti, and I can be reached at 406-270-3667 or via email at kat@thehousekat.com.

Hello Kat - congratulations on the accepted offer on this Kalispell Montana area property. 

 

It is too easy for some to dismiss any real estate associated with a homeowner association but there are good as well as not-so-good things connected with all sorts of things.  Your description of "those things" being "less onerous" is wisely stated. 

 

Those who understand the conditions and are in agreement will likely reap many benefits because this parcel seems to offer numerous.  Those who don't can hopefully find what works best for them.  And isn't that a good thing?

 

Good luck as you proceed towards closing day.

31 Acres of Montana land...incredible Kat. You mention guest houses, garages and more, but from what you wrote, this is only for 1 home to be built?

Michael Jacobs - I have found so far that most buyers want covenants so they know what is expected from everyone. But for the ones that don't want any rules, there's property that fits that need as well!

Yes, Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 - the rules will only allow one actual house.

Thank you Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! !

WOW! What a gorgeous piece of Kalispell MT, Kat! 31 acres gives them plenty of room to spread out, for sure. I love the HOA CC&Rs - few restrictions but, with great benefits, having the HOA maintain the roads. 

Congratulations and here's to smooth sailing to Closing!

Grant Schneider - it'll be for just the family. There are rules about subdividing in that specific community.

Thank you Tanya Van Blake-Coleman . Complication free would be great!

Debe Maxwell, CRS - Thank you! Yes, road maintenance is very important on those back roads!
